Date:3/15/2012

BARCELONA, Spain, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Grifols (MCE:GRF, MCE:GRF.P and NASDAQ: GRFS), the world's third largest plasma product manufacturer and a pioneer in the research and development of therapeutic alternatives designed to contribute to both scientific and social development, has acquired 51% of the equity of Zaragoza-based company Araclon Biotech, ensuring the viability of its projects and the future of the company.
